how can I add display url for app install ads in Editor?

Does the editor support display URLs for app install ads?

 

I'm trying to change Final URLs and editor won't let me post unless that URL matches the display URL...the catch?  There is no display url field in the editor for app install ads (at least that I can see).

 

Any work around here without having to manually update via UI?

It does, in a sense. The display URL for such ads must be either itunes.com or play.google.com/store (depending on whether the ad promotes an iOS or Android app), so Editor just fills it in automatically. The online interface does the same.

For what purpose? If you want to implement tracking, then that goes into tracking template. Final URL must correctly reflect the ultimate landing page - basically, the URL the user would see in the browser address bar after clicking on your ad.

The online interface doesn't expose display URL for these ads, either - for the same reason.
